Lol, since everyone seemed to love my audio of Cartman pitch-shifted down to sound like Trey Parker again, I thought I’d pitch-shift “What What In the Butt” so you could hear Matt Stone doing Butters (as well as Kyle and Trey Parker doing Stan and Cartman at the end)!
lol, I took Eric Cartman singing “Pokerface” and lowered the pitch back to Trey Parker doing the voice, and it’s pretty awesome. I feel like you can hear him laugh-sing at some points.
ETA: It’s just Lady Gaga at the bridge, so she sounds messed up in this, lol.
OMG, I’ve never been happier than when I beat the boss in Canada on the Stick of Truth, and the 8-bit video game version of Blame Canada started playing.
*While the main focus will be on the YA genre in this post, these tropes do apply to other literature genres as well*
OMG I finally get to be a girl in South Park Stick of Truth. It’s super problematic and it kind of pisses me off but I also love this fucking music I cannot get out of my head, lol
http://bit.ly/1qfs12I — This Easter, we wanted to highlight some of the reasons more choices for girls are so important. Why stay on a conveyor belt when you can build your own Ferris wheel, after all?
We’re GoldieBlox, a toy company out to show the world that girls deserve more choices than dolls and princesses. We believe that femininity is strong and girls will build the future — literally.
Our founder, Debbie Sterling, is a Stanford engineer who decided that girls need more choices than the pink aisle has to offer. She developed GoldieBlox, an interactive book series + construction set starring Goldie, the kid inventor who loves to build.
Kurt Cobain opened up about thinking he was gay as a youth in a 20-year-old interview recently unearthed by PBS.
Kurt Cobain died 20 years ago today. I’m not a big Nirvana fan, but there’s no denying we lost a pretty awesome person.

Get in loser, we’re getting health insurance.

Straight Comics, Gay Jokes
Stand-up comedy has always been predominantly a straight man’s game. And because of that it has always been a treacherous place for LGBT audiences. Let’s face it, “gay panic” and straight men’s squeamishness with homosexuality have been go-tos for guaranteed barroom laughs for decades.
Gay jokes may still be low-hanging fruit for straight comics but in recent years there has been a pronounced shift in the way that the broader culture frames its discussion of gay people. This article is a survey of recent “gay” material from popular straight male comedians. Some of the routines discussed here will be offensive to some readers. Some of them are offensive, period. But I’ve chosen to highlight comics and routines that I feel signify a shift – however slight – in how gay people are discussed in straight stand-up. Some of these men seem to sincerely support gay rights and gay people, while others are struggling with their own conflicting feelings on the issue. Others might just be going for an easy gag that happens to make them look like allies. But hopefully together they indicate a trend toward a day when the joke will no longer be on us.
